Although many are itching to get their hands on the newest iPhone model, a question still lingers; is it worth it?
The Apple device has been available in the UK since the 20th of September and has unsurprisingly been flying off the shelves. With a range of improvements under its belt, it warrants the term ‘upgrade’. However, with any big decision, we need to know all of the finer details before signing our name on that dotted line.
So, here is everything you need to know about the iPhone 11 before you take the plunge.
The iPhone 11 has received an abundance of praise for its improved camera capabilities. No more will the group selfies savagely crop their outer members, as the model boasts a new dual camera. This involves a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor, or in simpler terms means that you can throw away that selfie stick.
The camera has also been commended for its Night Mode option. A major improvement from the iPhone XR. The Night Mode option provides a significantly clearer photo in low-light environments so you can capture that Instagram-worthy shot at any hour.
Six colours are available for the phone; purple, red, yellow, green, black and white. While some options prove similar to those of the previous model, the option of purple and green are an exciting addition.
Although the iPhone XR also had water-resistant capabilities, (being able to survive for 30 minutes at a depth of 1 meter) Apple has chosen to improve this feature. With the iPhone 11, the device can be left submerged for up to 30 minutes at an increased depth of 2 meters.
Shape and Size
As expected, the iPhone 11 maintains the sleek stylings of its predecessors offering up the same curved edges and familiar rectangular shape. The device weighs a total of 194 grams and measures at H150.9mm x W75.7mm x D8.3mm.
Apple offers the device in 64, 128 and 256GB capacities, unchanged from the iPhone XR. The wide range ensures that you can choose a phone that suits your storage needs.
Charging Capabilities and Battery Life
Your phone dying isn’t always the end of the world, but it is inconvenient. Apple has been making steady improvements to its charging capabilities and the iPhone 11 demonstrates this. The model supports Apple’s ‘fast charge’ setting which gives your phone up to 50% battery in just 30 minutes but only providing you use an 18-watt charger. Your phone will come with the standard 5-watt charger upon purchase, so this benefit will be dependent on whether you decide to separately invest in the alternate charger.
The battery life of the iPhone 11 has also seen an increase, meaning you don’t have to worry about charging a power bank each day or bringing your charger along with you. Apple states that the battery size is 3110 mAh, which roughly equates to 11 hours of battery life.
This is perhaps the most important detail of them all when purchasing a new phone, and the iPhone 11 is no exception. So how much does it cost?
Well, the prices for this model are surprisingly reasonable starting from £729 and working their way up to £879 depending on your choice of capacity. Likewise, the insurance options for this model prove reasonable, starting at £7.79 a month.
So, it is evident that Apple has made several major improvements to the ever-popular iPhone. The iPhone 11 provides users with an intricate and impressive experience at a commendable price. It would be difficult to claim that this phone is not worth the investment. However, if these features are still not convincing you, take a look at the iPhone Pro or the iPhone Pro Max which Apple offer at a higher price but with additional capabilities.
